    Haley, now a proud 5 year old kindergartner, was sitting in music class after lunch, practicing songs for the school show when she looked up at the school nurse and said that she didn't feel very good and asked if she could be tested. We've been working on her developing language to describe how she feels when she's high/low, so the school nurse took her outside the music room and asked, "How is your blood sugar making you feel?" Haley's response: "It's telling me I don't like singing very much."
  4. You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when the toilet is stuffed, you call the plumber, he snakes the bowl, and at the end of his snake is a piece of blue plastic that just happens to match the blue plastic cover of your son's inset infusion set. See more parent humor.
